Kasey Kahne's Scary Wreck

It was an off weekend for the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, but that doesn't stop guys from racing.

Carl Edwards was among the Cup drivers in the Nationwide race Saturday night in Nashville, and Edwards drove away with a relatively easy win.

(Insert rant about Cup drivers ruining the other NASCAR touring series here.)

While all that was going on, and other drivers were vacationing, Kasey Kahne took to the dirt.

And eventually the air.

Racing in Pennsylvania, Kahne went for quite a ride in a sprint car.

Kahne was able to walk back up the hill and acknowledge the crowd, so they all knew he was okay. Kahne later tweeted about the wreck, saying he hadn't flipped like that in a long time.

Oddly enough, Kahne can probably expect to avoid a similar ride in his normal job, as the Sprint Cup cars take to the Brickyard Sunday.
